• 8 Hour Safe Driving Program - Willimantic Nov 2 & 9

EASTCONN offers this 8-hour Safe Driving Practices course in two 4-hour sessions. During the program students will study and discuss safe driving tactics and the consequences of impaired driving. This course is required for all applicants 16 years of age and older who have not previously held a Connecticut driver's license or who do not hold a valid license issued by another state.

This class is classroom only. These 8 hours of classroom instruction will cover safe driving practices and the effects of impaired driving.

PARENT/GUARDIAN: For teens 16 and 17 years of age a parent/guardian is required to complete a two-hour class with the student concerning teen driving laws and must sign the student in at the start of the first 4 hour class per state law. The 2-hour class that you will be attending with your teen, will help you understand the new teen driving laws. We will also discuss how you and your teen can effectively work together to create a plan for their behind-the-wheel practice.
